More than Memory | 10 Games & Activities for Everyone | MCA x Shirley Purdie
The MCA Store is thrilled to introduce our latest product More than Memory.
Inspired by MCA Collection artist Shirley Purdie's encyclopedic artwork, Goowoolem Gijam – Gija plants (2013–16), More than Memory, is much more than just a memory game. Featuring 36 of the 72 artworks that comprise Goowoolem Gijam – Gija plants, we have developed 10 engaging games and activities that are suitable for people of all ages and abilities including: Memory Games, Counting Cards, Create a Story, Describe & Draw, Finding Colours, Guessing Games, Identifying Plants, Quick Draw, and Sequence Master.
The beautifully printed cards are presented in a deluxe box and accompanied by instructions for games and activities suited for one, two or more people. Using mca.art you can also scan each artwork to hear artist Shirley Purdie talk about the plants and their use in Gija language, adding a special and interactive element to the cards.
